Waris Hubert Lilyale Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Brut Zero
|France, Champagne, Côte des Blancs
Chardonnay from three grand cru villages in the Côte des Blancs, this tense mineral wine is bone dry with citrus and apple crispness. It is tight and nervy, still young and needing to age further. This will be ready to drink from late 2018.
Pale golden colour with intense glints of emerald green. Fine and lively effervescence; lasting beads of bubbles. The aromas are elegant and expressive with a floral and springlike tone. Notes of lime blossom, mint and freshly mown grass develop, which evolve to white fruit and fresh Mirabelle plum. The scent of Viennese pastries and brioche fill the senses. The palate is full and with a rich attack. Firm and powerful. Dense in the evolution phase with lively lemon flavors, complimented by minerality and hints of wild citrus fruits. It's the purity, and elegance of the chardonnay grand cru of the Côte des Blancs. Elegant and expressive.
